Through a series of conversations, a Christian missionary and an African diviner challenge and compare one another's views on fundamental theological questions: the meaning of God; family and community; sickness and healing; death and the afterlife; good and evil. Their discussions tellingly reveal both the vitality of traditional African religions and Christianity's ethnocentrism when faced with certain basic issues in Africa. In a larger sense, The Missionary and the Diviner demonstrates how - and why - a cultural approach to evangelization is essential for the indigenization of Christianity.
